I'm currently on a 28 day pill pack. I usually take my pill starting on sunday. I'm currently on the placebo row. I was wondering if I started a new pack tomorrow, would that stop my period from coming this month or would it just screw everything up? It usually starts on Thursday or Friday

So you want to shorten your placebo week, essentially? You can do that, but there's no way of knowing what effect it would have - your period may not show up, but it might anyways, you might have spotting throughout the month, etc. Everyone's body reacts slightly differently to shortening or skipping a placebo week, and there isn't a way to predict how it will work for you.
